Character Comparison
Gameplan differences

Lambda emphasises lockdown and approach
Lambda's gameplan focuses on suppressing her opponent and moving in with mixups, ideally corner carrying them into her strong oki tools where she can close in and perform her various mixups from up close. Most of Lambda's special moves are attacks which have long recovery if they miss or are blocked, but tend to make highly rewarding callout tools.

Nu emphasises evasion and long range
Nu's gameplan focuses on keeping away from her opponent while using her long ranged superiority to harass them from relative safety. Her main high-low mixups exist at medium to long range. Nu's Act Pulsar and Gravity Seeds look similar to Lambda's, but they are not attacks, instead they're used to keep distance from her opponent or to close in since they recover much more quickly than Lambda's equivalents.

Drive Differences

Lambda's Drive Focuses on space control

  • Drives have negligible deadzone
  • 2D and 6D are active for longer
  • 236D and 214D are highly active and advantageous, making them strong oki tools to cover approaches
  • j.214D Covers a large area close to Lambda

Nu's Drive Focuses on long ranged sniping

  • Drives spawn further away, reducing the time it takes to get to the target
  • 2D and 6D accelerate twice as fast
  • 236D is a full ranged low that mixes up with 4D.
  • 214D is a powerful threat to prevent approaches and punish mistakes made at any range.
  • j.214D Is a long ranged Overhead that can be mixed up in various ways.
Cancel options

Lambda's Cancels Mix together Normals, Drives and Specials more fluidly

  • Drive followups are forced to activate if the first attack hits or is blocked
  • All cancel options (Except Rapid Cancel) only apply to the followup hit.
  • Lambda can cancel the final hit of C normals into drives
  • Lambda cannot repeat any drives in a single chain. She can use all four grounded drives in one chain
  • Lambda can special cancel Drives on hit or block, these can often then link back into normal moves in various combos
  • Lambda has a complex Rekka chain which is used extensively as parts of her mixups, stagger pressure and combos.

Nu's Cancels Emphasise Drive Flexibility

  • Drive followup attacks are manual activated and thus optional
  • Drives can cancel into other drives and back again (In chains of three before any jump cancels)
  • Drives can cancel from the first or second hit
  • Nu cannot cancel any other normal attack into normal drive attacks
  • Can whiff cancel drives into Act Pulsar
